    Today in 1945, the island was liberated from Nazi occupation.

    Most islanders with British roots were deported however in 1942 to Germany and were put in POW camps (ILAG). whole families, pregnant woman, kids, old people. They were liberated by Allied troops (mostly French), also in April 1945.Stefan.


    NB: Some died in the camps, but babies were born too.
